He added: "I love hearing about our students other skills, and a fine example is Chris Warrington. Chris not only plays cornet in the band but has a wonderful tenor voice and featured as a vocal soloist in their finale!"
We'd like to congratulate to the organisers of UniBrass for reaching their tenth contest. They really have transformed University brass banding. We have supported the contest from the start and it's a nice stat to see that UoH have averaged third place since 2011!"
